Safety Tips

Chainsaw Safety

What is kickback?
Kickback is the violent backward and/or upward motion of the chainsaw guide bar occurring when the chain near the nose or tip of the guide bar contacts any object, such as another log or branch, or when the wood closes in and pinches the saw chain in the cut.

Be Aware of Kickback
1. Be alert at all times to guard against a possible kickback reaction. Always be aware of the position of your bar’s nose.
2. Different models of cutting chain are available for most cutting tasks. Use the chain suitable for your type of cutting, with the lowest kickback potential.
3. Narrow-nose bars are recommended for maximum kickback safety.
